Mack Damon

Mack Damon (born December 22, 1972 in Independence, Missouri), is a successful record producer and recording engineer based in San Antonio, Texas. Originally a musician at an early age, his career has guided him to through the following successful endeavors:Touring Musician, Session musician, Grammy nominated recording engineer, Radio DJ, Arranger, Studio Manager,
Record Producer, VP of Label Operations, Recording Studio Designer, and Recording Studio Owner.

Damon, the youngest of two siblings, attended the University of North Texas in the early nineties where he was re-introduced to the technology of recording and computers. The transition between the two was becoming seamless in modern production, and Damon was "hooked". He eventually assisted teaching MUAG1217, an introductory course in Electronic music, while at the University. After a few semesters at UNT, Mack continued performing with bands, and eventually ended up with a recording job at Oh So Good! productions. The small facility put him in touch with many up and coming artists that he would produce, and then leave to perform and tour with.

In 1995, Mack and his boss, Dub Hankins, built the Rhapsody Street Studios facility, and Mack produced and engineered 11 full-length releases in the first 2 years. After a renovation and expansion, Mack moved into urban/rap/hip hop production and completed 14 releases in the following 18 month period.

In 1999, Damon started teaching audio engineering part-time, and worked with local school districts to offer high-school students a chance to work in a real recording studio environment. In addition, adult community-ed programs have been built around his lectures.

Also in 1999, Mack Damon began showing his photography to other artists, and eventually became a prolific photographer of musicians, documenting the recording process, and preparing images for marketing materials. His photography work has appeared in national print publications, on the web, and on TV.

Mack Damon served as the president of the Texas Music Coalition for two terms, starting in 2004.

In 17 successive releases with Dr. Maggie under a series of major educational publishers, Damon's work has sold more than 500,000 copies.

In 2003, Mack put together a group of investors and bought Rhapsody Street Studios.
